Here are the latest Covid-19 vaccination numbers as of Tuesday, February 22.
In Flagler County, 19,618 people have received at least one of the two required shots, and 7,001 have received both shots.
So far, 17.1 percent of the county’s population has been inoculated with at least one shot, which in itself provides significant protection from severe complications from Covid-19. So far 16,500 of Flagler County’s 36,500 people who are 65 and over have been vaccinated with at least one shot, representing 45.2 percent of the local population of 65 and over, up from 41.2 percent near the end of last week. That’s a somewhat higher proportion than in the state as a whole, where 41.7 percent of those 65 and over have been inoculated at least once.
In Florida, 2.7 million people have received at least one shot, or 12.6 percent of the population, and 1.4 million have received both shots, or 6.5 percent, up from 5.7 percent near the end of last week. A total of 4.1 million doses have been administered statewide,
including 471,017 in the past seven days, an average of 67,288 shots per day statewide, according to the Florida Department of Health. Florida ranks 27th in the rate of inoculation among American states and the District of Columbia.
In Flagler in the last seven days, 4,235 first or second doses have been administered at all locations–those run by the Flagler Health Department, Publix, AdventHealth Palm Coast and pharmacies inoculating residents of assisted living facilities and nursing homes–for an average of 605 shots per day. In the past seven days, 1,909 people in Flagler County have completed their two-dose series.
“This week is expected to be our busiest week for administering vaccines to Flagler County residents,” Bob Snyder, director of Flagler County Health Department, said on Sunday. “We have activity happening every day through Saturday.”
He said the waiting list that once numbered 12,000 Flagler residents is near depletion. “We should be very close to vaccinating 50% of our seniors over 65 by end of week.”
In the United States, 13 percent of the population has received at least one shot, 5.9 percent has received both. That places the United States in fourth place worldwide in the rate of vaccination, behind Israel, which has vaccinated 87 percent of its population with at least one shot (not including Palestinians under Israeli occupation), the United Arab Emirates (56 percent), and Great Britain (27 percent), according to Oxford University’s Our World in Data (see below).
The nation was inoculating just under 200,000 people per day in late December. The seven-day average was up to 900,000 a day by Jan. 20. It is now 1.6 million per day, exceeding the goal of 1.5 million per day President Biden set in order to have 100 million people inoculated in his first 100 days. At the current pace, half the population of the United States will be vaccinated with at least one dose by July 19, 70 percent by Oct. 6, and 90 percent by Christmas Day, according to projections based on figures by the Centers for Disease Control.

Thanks Flagler Live, Flagler Health Department ( and all involved in acquiring more vaccines), David Ayers and the seniors who expressed their concerns and their experiences in the past couple of weeks. Many seniors as well as I received our first dose at the Fairgrounds which was very well organized, people friendly with not much wait time. I am sure that the many other seniors who are are patiently waiting for their first vaccine will be called very soon and can finally feel some relief.
It should be madatory that all 1st responders get vaccinated. If they dont like it they should be let go. You have a duty tobyour community to get vaccinated. 1st responder anti vaccers should be terminated.
It’s shame how this city and county treats the elderly. I have friends that have go to other cities and counties to get the vaccine. Case in point a 90 year old friend and his wife have to drive to Jacksonville to get a shot. I’ll bet you the best drink in the house that ALL our politicians have received the shot. From the governor on down ,they suck.
I have an artificial heart valve and COPD. It would be nice if I could at least get scheduled for my first vaccine. I’ve tried Publix online appointments to no avail. And I’m on a list for Florida, Flagler County waiting list. It’s sad that government authorities do not have enough vaccines supplies.
Update, gave up trying to get one locally, now on the waiting list for St John’s County. Actually talked to a live person who will be calling this week to make an appointment.
The Flagler County numbers are a joke! MANY people have had to cross county lines in order to get their vaccination. What is going on here? Why is Flagler County NOT getting enough vaccine? I had to go to St John’s Co. to get mine, as did my roommate. The distribution numbers just are not adding up. Why is the state not giving Flagler Co. enough vaccine? Just seems a little fishy to me….
Flagler is a joke! Spent many hours on the PC trying to sign up. Was told by a neighbor, to access the StJohns county COVID web site. Opened up their page and there were many appointment times available. About 6 tonight, we both made appointments in StAugustine for Monday of next week. No waiting on line like here. Why the hell don’t Flagler County do the same? Probably to lazy. Sad.

I don’t believe over 40% of those over 65 in Flagler County have received their Covid vaccine . I am 83 and have not even gotten a promise date or even a priority listing from Flaler Heath Dept.
It’s not in Flagler
Tried Publix and Flagler sites
Weeks go by & no luck
Concerned Citizen says
I continue to wonder how accurate these numbers are? Many of us have had to go out of county for our shots, and many people who do not live here have come into Flagler county for their shots. So, unless they are going by a database of where someone lives (instead of where they are getting the shot) these numbers aren’t remotely correct.
I do not and I am 69 years old
Please call the Solomon Calhoun Cmmty Ctr for a very efficient and caring experience
1300 Duval St Augustine 32084
I live in the Hammock, Palm Coast and received both vaccines there ; many of my neighbors have gone there and we have all been extremely happy after the very stressful experience in Flagler
They even have golf carts from the parking lot if you need a ride!
The EMTs are wonderful , and we were out of there within an hour.
Went there for our shots and had a great experience!!

thank you so much for the information. I called yesterday and they just called me back for an appointment tomorrow to get shot at 9:00 am at address you said. Virus shot …I am 70 yrs old and have lived in Palm Coast for 15 yrs. Flagler County is full Trump swamp..I had my life threaten at Walgreen’s and they did nothing.. I am buying a AR15 today…
Flagler County is a Joke! Amd a laughing stock. Its a sad day for Flagler County Officials when the elderly in their county need to go to other counties to get the vaccine. I hope you officials are taking a long hard look at how you have failed your people
Went St Augustine as well, got my first shot as a 70 year old. . NO luck, In FLAGLER CTY and I exhausted so many hours waiting and not getting any response for days and days, from the Health Dept and Publix. . Maybe its time to even move from this backward GOOD OLE BOY county and take my taxes with me to St Johns Cty or Volusia.
Yes, I am from Palatka and most of my friends have moved to the St Augustine area. I see them on Facebook with their wonderful houses. St Augustine great town to walk around and see the sights..
I called the number and a nice young lady told me I must register with sjcfl.us for an appointment
